Liverpool. Protest against $70m terminal

Liverpool City Council has set Sunday August 15 for its protest rally against the planned $70 million Moorebank container terminal. A council press release said the rally will “say NO'' to the intermodal freight terminal. Infrastructure Minister Anthony Albanese said that the terminal would inject hundreds of new jobs into the area. More than $35 million was allocated towards planning, surveys and community consultation in the last Federal Government budget. A further $35 million was set aside for relocating the School of Military Engineering, currently located at the site, to nearby Holsworthy Army Base. Developer Stockland and its partners also own a site across the road, known as the Defence National Distribution Centre and plan to develop it into a secondary container facility.
